More Mail Art

This month seems to be flying by, and there hasn't been a lot of art time. Sometimes life seems to get in the way! But I did have a bit of time to create a legal-sized envelope for an art swap.
The theme was "Artist's Choice", so I rummaged through a box of pre-cut images to find some of my favorites.
I began with a manila folder, covered it was a layer of gesso and added color with my Inktense Pencils. The webbing effect was created with a piece of round plastic needlepoint canvas. After stenciling through it with white paint, I flipped it over (onto it's still wet side) to create the 'spider web' - fast and effective.
